Martin's Grill is the PERFECT spot for a casual lunch or dinner with friends, family, or... well anyone! The food is mouthwatering, the service is extremely friendly & attentive, and the menu is pretty diverse for being a burger joint! Everything there is kind of à la carte, so your sandwich is only a few bucks (and you can get WHATEVER you want on it), then you can order a basket of fries (which could feed a small army) for the table to share! We LOVE their appetizers (the Fried Pickles being my personal favorite) and I know that no matter what I order, whether it’s a burger, a chicken sandwich, or wings… that it will without a doubt be DELICIOUS! Before we discovered this place we used to frequent Riverside, but after enjoying Martin’s food & family atmosphere, we will NEVER go ANYWHERE else!! It is quality people & quality grub! :) Tom the owner is extremely genuine & will even add things to the menu that his regulars request (I have never seen ANY other place be so connected with their costumers) and his son & nephew that help run the business are also extremely hardworking & devoted! The decor is quaint and includes scenic photography taken by Tom's own wife & a few nicely positioned flat screen TVs to watch a game or even cartoons for the kids! It’s nice that they have an extensive selection of bottled beer, wine & malt beverages, which can make the experience a social visit with friends or family, rather than just a quick bite (though the food comes out fast enough for it to be a ‘quick bite’ if you were in a hurry) which is quite refreshing. They even have a little ice cream cooler and a couple arcade games for the kiddos, AND to top it off, they give out lollipops up at the counter when you pay (which has saved my daughter from a few potential meltdowns as everyone is trying to get out the door)! It’s great to have a place to go that feels almost like “home” and is such a reasonably priced experience for something so satisfying! If you have NOT gone there, you NEED to check it out the next time you are in the Hollymead area; you too will become a Martin's addict! :) All our friends we have told about it, now go there even more than we do! Lol.

This is my favorite place to get chicken fingers and French fries. We also got the fish sandwich this time. So good! Also, they play really great music over the speakers. Classic Rock and Blues.

We take our 3 little children here for lunch or dinner because the atmosphere is family friendly. We enjoy burgers, fries, Philly cheesesteak and the chicken fingers.

We have been to Martins several times. Whenever we are on that side of town and we are hungry, we choose Martins. Great burgers, fries and hot dog fare. Our kids love it and the staff is very friendly and quick. Good experience every time if you are looking for burgers and fries.
